Question: Hitachi Blower Wont Start
Hitachi RB24EAP 23.9cc wont start even with a small squirt of starting fluid. I didget spark at the plug with the plug removed and grounded. While trying to start it today on one occasion it did run for a few seconds.
It sounds like carburetor problems.
Question: Gas Issue
I tried to start my blower today and it just wouldn't start. Cleaned out all old gas and started new. Then I saw a small line beside another line beside the gas cap and one that went into the grommet was off. I took the grommet off which was clogged, cleaned it out and put the line back in it proper. Still wont start. I have never had a problem with it starting on the first try. What should I try next before just buying another one. I have only had this one two years, this being the third season. I has been great until now. What do I do? Please help!!
Hi KevR I am not sure which fuel line(s) were off on your machine. I would suggest replacing them with new as ethanol degrades them over time. I also suggest removing and cleaning the inside of the carburetor on the machine. Whatever was clogging the fuel line probably made it into the carburetor too. When you replace the new fuel lines, it is recommended to install a NEW fuel filter in the fuel tank as well.
So, what you are looking at doing is a complete fuel system tune up.
Not wanting to change the topic but I need tips on removing a wheel from my Powermate Model PM0645250 Coleman Generator, come on don't be shy.
Nobody shy here,...You should have started a new thread. What wheel do you want to remove? The flywheel?
Question: Pull Rope RB24EAP 3.9 Cc Blower
The pull rope on this model is really poor quality. I broke my first one after 6 pulls. The 2nd one after 2 months. This is really unacceptable. Is there anything I can do because taking it a part to fix is a real pain in the rear.
Hello You can check the big box stores or ebay for some BETTER quality pull rope, and/or visit your local small engine shop. Ebay has quality pull rope for sale for small engine equipment.
There is NO feasible way to improve LOW quality rope.
